Clinical features of Chinese patients with relapsing polychondritis.

CONCLUSIONS: Our study shows that uveitis associated with RP may manifest as generalised, anterior or posterior uveitis. The incidence of inner ear involvement and arthritis in these patients was lower than that in Caucasians. Female patients seem to have milder inflammation and a better visual prognosis.

Authors: Semionov A, Kosiuk J, Ajlan A, Discepola F Abstract Identification of certain abnormalities of the chest wall can be extremely helpful in correctly diagnosing a number of syndromic conditions and systemic diseases. Additionally, chest wall abnormalities may sometimes constitute diagnoses by themselves. In the present pictorial essay, we review a number of such conditions and provide illustrative cases that were retrospectively identified from our clinical imaging database. These include pentalogy of Cantrell, Klippel-Feil syndrome, cleidocranial dysplasia, Poland syndrome, osteopetrosis, neurofibromatosis ...

In this study, we retrospectively analyzed data of a group FUO/IUO patients that suspected of PMR, aiming to analyze the imaging features of PMR in FDG PET/CT and evaluate the clinical value of FDG PET/CT in differential diagnosis of PMR. Materials and Methods: From January 2014 to June 2018, among the patients who underwent PET/CT examination because of FUO/IUO, 26 patients were suspected of PMR due to shoulder joint pain and stiffness, increased serum inflammatory factors and age over 50 years old. Clinical and imaging data of these 26 patients were retrospectively analyzed. Final diagnoses were made by board-certified r...

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a multisystem disorder of cartilaginous tissues. Previously, we found that patients with respiratory involvement and patients with auricular involvement were mutually exclusive in the RP cohort, which suggests a strong inverse relationship between respiratory and auricular involvement. Here, we examined the clinical manifestation patterns in a subgroup of patients with respiratory involvement (R subgroup) and a subgroup of patients with auricular involvement (A subgroup) and investigated the clinical and laboratory characteristics of each subgroup. There were 47 patients (19.7%) and 118 pa...

ConclusionAutoimmune diseases were present in 26% of patients. One-third of patients with anterior necrotizing scleritis or posterior scleritis experienced decreased vision, mostly due to secondary glaucoma and optic neuritis. Therefore, controlling intraocular pressure by methods such as administration of steroid-sparing immunosuppressive medication and appropriate treatment for posterior scleritis are essential for scleritis treatment.

Abstract ObjectiveTo assess patient‐reported symptoms and burden of disease in relapsing polychondritis (RP). MethodsPatients with RP completed a disease‐specific online survey to identify symptoms attributed to illness. Patients were divided into subgroups based upon presence or absence of ear/nose, airway, or joint involvement. Pathway to diagnosis, treatment, and disease‐related complications were assessed within each subgroup. ResultsData from 304 respondents were included in this analysis. Prior to diagnosis, most patients with RP went to the emergency room (54%), saw>3 physicians (54%), and had symptoms for&...
